Bill C-12 is not a plan for Canada to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, but it would set targets to help it succeed.

If Canada began to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by about four per cent per year, we could still meet our 2030 climate targets.
The next administration will need to carefully weigh the economic, social and environmental impacts of both climate change and the policy responses.

After four years of the US government undoing climate change policies and partnerships, a Biden administration has a chance to rebuild that leadership. But success will require more than quick wins.
A building designed to be easily taken apart so the components can be reused is a model for much less wasteful construction. It reduces resource use and environmental impacts, and can be cheaper too.

From property to local government, economic sectors are meeting the climate change challenge head on. Now the federal government must get on board.
Modern agriculture releases lots of different greenhouse gas emissions, each with complex effects on the global climate.

In dismissing the youth climate case, the court acknowledged that climate change is serious, but not serious enough to reconsider the reach of the constitution.

Low-carbon energy sources aren't all equally well-suited to getting us to net-zero emissions.

Green diesel may be intended to reduce emissions but it is not necessarily environmentally and socially sound.
Do we need this many vehicles on the road?
Life cycle assessments of electric vehicles show that they cannot fully eliminate the greenhouse gas emissions of personal travel. We also need bikes, buses and trains to solve our climate problems.
Universities are vital hubs of research and teaching on climate change and, as big organisations, produce significant emissions themselves. They should therefore lead action to limit climate change.
Intervention on a medium-voltage circuit breaker, an electrical switchgear using SF6 gas.
Used in electrical switching equipment, sulfur hexafluoride (SF₆) has a global-warming impact 23,500 times higher than CO₂. New EU regulations seek to promote alternatives.
Greenhouse gas emissions from public electricity and heat production decreased to 70 Mt in 2018.
Canada isn't on track to meet its 2030 greenhouse gas emissions target. We need a clear plan — and soon.
The report by the World Meteorological Organisation shows that with large and rapid emissions cuts, we can still avoid the most severe climate change. But worryingly, we also have time to make it far worse.
Going from a single spore to a finished fungi-derived leather product takes a couple of weeks. But raising a cow to maturity for bovine leather can take several years.
Yesterday, the bushfire royal commission handed down interim observations. But there's a glaring omission.
Despite this year's coronavirus lockdowns, more CO2 has accumulated in the atmosphere than during the same period in 2017 or 2018.

My research shows we'll need transformative change not just temporary lockdowns for COVID-19 to make much difference to the climate.
The Mjøstårnet, an 18-storey mixed-use building constructed with engineered wood, overlooks Norway’s largest lake, in Brumunddal.
Buildings account for a large proportion of greenhouse gas emissions globally. Sustainably sourced wood could be a better building material.
It’s more expensive to refuel a petrol vehicle than it is to charge an electric vehicle.
South Africa's well positioned to adopt electric vehicles but this isn't a solution in itself because the vehicles would still depend on electricity generated from carbon-emitting coal power stations.
